It’s Day 2 for the senators in Washington, D.C. We started out with a beautiful and solemn tribute to fallen servicemembers at Arlington National Cemetery. Did you know there are more than 400,000 people buried there?! The land used to be General Robert E. Lee’s home, thanks to his wife Mary Custer, but they left it when Lee joined the Confederate Army. The Union Army later took this land to bury their dead, which I’m sure didn’t make Lee too happy.
After our Patriotic Service in the Arlington Memorial Amphitheater, we returned to our temporary home for the start of Senate. I did some light reading and learned all about something called Robert’s Rules of Order. I’ve been told that following these rules can avoid embarrassment, hard feelings, and possibly even legal troubles. Madam President, I rise to a point of order!
I continue to meet so many wonderful young ladies. The girls here are so smart and talented. They enjoy taking pictures with me, but I think I like it more than they do. Keep watching to find out what tomorrow’s adventures will bring. I have a feeling I’ll get the chance to finally debate my bill!
